Bacteremia due to Kingella denitrificans in a child followed-up for bone marrow failure syndrome.

Abstract Kingella denitrificans is a non-pathogenic micro-organism present in oropharyngeal flora. This germ has been recently recognized as responsible for opportunistic invasive infections mainly affecting immunosuppressed patients. We here report the case of a child aged 3 years and 7 months followed-up since the age of one year for bone marrow failure syndrome associated with pancytopenia of undetermined origin who had bacteremia due to Kingella denitrificans, a group of difficult to culture gram-negative bacteria rarely described in the literature. Clinicians and microbiologists should suspect the presence of this germ especially in immunosuppressed patients. The use of blood culture bottle contributes in a significant way to the detection of this germ.
